Art and activism collide in a unique fashion show created, cultivated by two HHS students

Though Germantown is certainly no Milan or Paris, we do house several incredibly gifted budding fashion designers of our own. Houston High seniors Halima Morafa and Alexis Doan have created a unique line of clothes to be showcased and used to raise money towards the ending of domestic violence.

The collection is entitled Valued and aims to celebrate self-acceptance, self-love, and tolerance, all while raising awareness and money for a local domestic violence center.

The looks are to be specially premiered at the fashion show on September 29th at 6pm, and will feature fellow Houston High students as models. Following the show, all of the pieces will be available in a silent auction for purchase. The proceeds from both the show and auction will all go to a local domestic violence center.

Their art teacher, Amanda Schulter is particularly proud of her two AP art students who are creating and performing the show as their senior honors academy project.  The marriage of service and art is the pinnacle of passion for both their craft and a real drive to help others.

As a part of their service project, Halima and Alexis submitted this abstract to describe the project.  In it they explain that their show, "will include a expressive clothing collection that represents the stages one takes towards self-acceptance, self-love, and tolerance; both our renovated upcycled collections will represent the beautification process of what society considered unworthy".
